Dear. M. Bowen
Thanks for Mr. Whiting's review
I had a letter from him yes-
terday, but he did not send
me the article
We were so greedy about finding
Out of Doors in the Independent
that we did not think of looking
for further glorification for
the Stoddard family -
I have just found the notice
and agree with the writer that
Two Men must be read slowly, to
give time for the mist of the
author's mind to clear off, and
for the intelligence of the reader
to fill up the 'analytic gaps' -
then perhaps my truth and
meaning will be discovered.
I shall not send regards to
anybody who prevents you
settling down in the level fields
of matrimony - expectation,
romance, sentiment etc are very
beautiful for a period, but
human nature like Oliver Twist
is asking for more -
